Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Good morning! I'm sorry that you're having this problem. Could you answer a few questions for me?
1) How old are you?2) Aside from feeling that the bumps were present, did you have any pain, tenderness or soreness in these areas?3) Aside from the synth road, have you had any other changes in your medical history or diet?4) Do you smoke or use any other tobacco products?5) Do you drink more than 2 alcoholic drinks per day?The good news is this does not look like oral cancer from the photos that you shared with me. The cheek and soft palate are not the typical spots for cancer to start. It's most common on the tongue and floor of the mouth. So please be reassured that this is not likely to be cancer. I'd like to help you narrow down the other possibilities if possible.Sincerely,Dr. Lara
It sounds like you could have had an allergic reaction to the medication. You can have red bumps (hives) on the skin or mouth in reaction to Synthroid. You did the right thing by stopping the medication. Have you taken any type of antihistamine? Have you seen your doctor to evaluate these bumps? Rest assured, these do not in any way look like oral cancer.What other uestions can I answer for you?Sincerely,Dr. Lara
